Jeffinho, who arrived at Olympique Lyonnais almost a year ago, is returning to his former club.
Olympique Lyonnais is very active in the winter transfer window. The club, which has just announced the signings of central defender Adryelson and goalkeeper Lucas Perri, has also started to trim its squad.
Jeffinho, who arrived in the final days of the transfer window last year from Botafogo, is already packing his bags to return to his former club. The 24-year-old winger has been loaned to the Brazilian club for the next six months.
“Attacker Jeffinho is back at Botafogo. The negotiation, the fruit of the collaborative culture between the clubs that are part of Eagle Football Holdings, saw the return of the 24-year-old player loaned by Olympique Lyonnais until the end of 2024. Jeffinho will resume his career at Glorioso on January 7, the date of the group’s presentation for the 2024 season. The striker will wear the number 47 again. Congratulations, Jeffinho,” the club wrote on its Twitter account.

Jeffinho, a flop at Lyon, is looking to revive his career at Botafogo
Jeffinho arrived in the costume of a great hope, but he never convinced. In total, he will have scored 3 goals and provided 3 assists in 21 small matches in all competitions for the former Vasco de Gama striker. But Jeffinho has a great opportunity to get back to full fitness before the end of his loan, and thus consider relaunching himself with the Rhone residents next season. The player will play in the Copa Libertadores, the equivalent of the Champions League in South America.
Jeffinho’s return to Botafogo is a chance for him to revive his career. He will have the opportunity to play regularly and show his qualities. If he is successful, he could return to Lyon next season as a more complete player.
